That RFC was written in August 1998. 

Please consider that CVS early history began in 1986 and stabilized as
a a program on its own (if still heavily relying on rcs and diff among
others) in 1991. 

Perhaps one day people there will come a CVS version 2 that drops
backwards compatibility completely, works on top of any database
system and has neat plugins (CORBA[1]?) for different access methods
but until then the format for the CVSROOT should basically be at least
backwards compatible.

    CORBA... *slaps my silly brain*
